We were approached by a dear friend to plan her husband’s 60th birthday bash. Because of couple’s love and passion for music and good food, the right entertainment and a delectable menu was very important to them. The couple also wanted to create an Andalusian/Moroccan theme because of all of their travels and their special love for architecture, music and colors.
Nikki and Madiha were able to sit down with the couple for a detailed discussion and walked away with a full understanding of what the client was envisioning. After the initial site visit with all the involved vendors, wheels started to turn in motion as they had two months to plan this bash.
The couple was given the color chart and shown two specific colors – deep red and midnight blue – that we thought would work well with the space and theme. Because entertainment was a vital part of this event, a trio of cajon, acoustic guitar/singer and dancer was hired.
The food was also very carefully chosen to reflect the theme with Mezze table and a delicious cuisine paying homage to Morocco. Beverages were given careful consideration and upon arrival of guests, they were served Moroccan inspired drinks. Bartenders were dressed in Fez and Djullabas to create the cohesive theme. We also managed to get the best DJ who rocked the night!
Looking at all the details from the invite to the door sign, menu, bar signs, lighting, food, furniture vignettes, long tables, bar area, pool area, one could tell that a lot of planning, designing and coordination had gone into this event. Guests were in for a beautiful experience and best part of all was to see the birthday boy having a blast, so much so that at some part of the night, he decided to jump in the pool and also dance flamenco style with the dancer!
This was truly a birthday that my friends and their guests will never forget! We loved working with them to pull this event together, and wish the birthday boy a very fruitful and wonderful year!
